Procedures to Calculate Radiological and Toxicological Exposures from Airborne Releases of Depleted Uranium( )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The 105mm Armor-Piercing, Fin-Stabilized, Discarding Sabot-Tracered (APFSDS-T), Kinetic Energy XM774 and M735A1 cartridges, developed by the U.S. Army Armament Research and Development Command (ARRADCOM), are intended for use in tanks equipped with an M68 gun. These cartridges, both containing a depleted uranium (DU) penetrator, will provide improved penetration effectiveness over the currently fielded M392 and M728 series of armor-piercing, spin-stabilized, discarding sabot rounds and the M735 APFSDS-T cartridge. A concern of using these munitions is centered on potential radiation and toxicity exposures which may result from scheduled or accidental releases of the DU penetrator to the air as fine particles. Depleted uranium metal is formed as a by-product of the uranium enrichment process, and contains a very small percentage, by weight, of the lighter, faster decaying 234U and 235U isotopes. Thus the activity of DU is much less than that of natural uranium, although chemically both metals have similar properties
Recycling/Disposal Alternatives for Depleted Uranium Wastes( )

1 edition published in 1981 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

All depleted uranium (DU) waste generated during test activities and from unused war reserve is subject to disposal as low-level radioactive waste. At present there is no operational alternative to sending DU wastes to commercial disposal sites for burial. Because of the uncertainties associated with the use of commercial sites in the future, the Air Force is seeking to identify and evaluate feasible recycling/disposal alternatives for the disposition of its DU wastes. In this report, potential recycle and disposal options are defined and briefly characterized. For each form of the DU waste, benefits and issues of applicable recycling/disposal alternatives are identified. Based on a comparative evaluation of these options, the most promising mode(s) of disposition are indicated for each type of waste material. The responsibilities and key regulations of government agencies pertaining to the management of low-level radioactive waste are given in the appendix
Sensitivity Study on Air Dispersion and Hazard Exposure Models( Book )

1 edition published in 1981 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The U.S. Army is currently using mathematical models to assess potential hazards associated with the use of depleted uranium (DU) munitions. These models simulate dispersion of material released to the air, determine subsequent air and ground concentrations, and estimate potential radiological and toxicological exposures to man from such releases. The models provide the Army with a decision-support tool for addressing health and safety considerations associated with depleted uranium released to the air under a range of scheduled or accidental conditions. In Section II the systematic sensitivity analysis used in this study is described. The model parameters and sensitivity/uncertainty evaluation for the air dispersion models and hazard exposure models are discussed in Section III. Section IV contains the conclusions drawn from the evaluation of model parameters from both the air dispersion and hazard exposure models
